Sammanfattning: The aim of this study is to gain an insight of which views young non-white males have of the Stockholm police and what sort of treatment they receive from the police in their residential areas. The study is based on a qualitative research method that was based on ten individual interviews with young non-white males between the ages of 16–19. All the participants in the study were of sub-saharan African and Middle Eastern descent and resided in the same socially segregated area in Stockholm. Four themes were identified during the study, namely: young non-white male’s views of the police, young non-white male’s experiences with the police, young non-white male’s trust in the police and lastly the impact of attire on police treatments. Furthermore, the results have been analyzed with the help of previous research, theoretical frameworks such as stamping theory and stigma, and concepts such as structural discrimination and racism. The results in these studies showed that young non-white males have a skewed view of the police and a low confidence in the police and the work they perform. The negative view of the police is based on the fact that the young non-white males have had previous experiences of negative police treatments and believe that their skin color, appearance, and residential areas are in fact the reason for the police stops. This result in connection with the descriptions of racial profiling has its similarities as the concept is about people getting treated differently due to their race/ethnicity.
